Chocolate Strawberries

I'm a little behind in posting this with Valentine's day being tomorrow, but chocolate covered strawberries is something I enjoy year round!  My husband thought it would be neat to buy me chocolate covered strawberries from Pulakos in Erie, PA.  I loved their chocolate when we lived there.  It would have been $25 for a dozen plus $50 in shipping and handling, $75 for 12 strawberries!  I told him I could make my own and they would be freshly made each day I ate them! Just takes a couple of minutes to make!   Of course Pulakos is the best, but for convenience I used Wilton candy melts. You can buy these at Wal-mart or your local craft store.

First thing you do is wash and thoroughly dry your strawberries.
Melt your chocolate and stir at 30 second intervals until completely melted.  I hold the strawberries by the leaves and dip until completely covered.

 Please excuse my pajamas!

Place on parchment paper until cooled.
Then eat them!
My husband also bought me some live roses, when it warms up I'll plant them in a bigger pot outside.
We are going to Springfield, MO (an hour away) tomorrow for Valentine's day.  What are your plans?


Do you think the strawberries will qualify for the red theme at Quilt Shop Gal's linky party?  LOL

Happy Valentine's Day. Your strawberries look yummy. The local grocery store was selling them but since DH does not like berries I could not justify purchasing something he would not eat too. Beautiful rose.

if the strawberries don't qualify, then the red rose plant does.

I like the idea of a live rose so much better! Will you put it in the ground or a bid planter ?

Pardon me Missy, while I wipe the drool off the keyboard. LOL
